let sleeping pigs lie

I usually don't jump in the pen with the pigs.....well, maybe I did about 500 pounds ago!
Don't be alarmed....the precious pair were too busy working on their summer tans and freckles to care!, if only they would work on their figures as well! ....Ty Penningtons annoying megaphone couldn't stir these big boned beauties.

me? the jealous type? only when it comes to the "girls" my husband endears them. If there's ever a time when hubby is missing...I know where to find him.....over with his "loveys".
The two sweeties are Olive and Violet.....and yes, they are the two tiny, sprite piglets photographed in Country Living Magazine.

Many a car slows down....backs up to make sure they really weren't seeing things......and usually with a worried brow asks us if the behemoth pair will be leaving on a truck to meet "the great big mud puddle in the sky". Of course, the answer is "NO" they will never see the butcher,baker or candlestick maker.

For those of you who love animals....and especially love feeding animals they are a wonderful addition.....just make sure you have good connections with the day-old bakery!

When I clicked on your name over at EArth Angels Toys blog, I didn't expect to find you sitting on a pig. I did expect to find beautiful artwork...and I did!

I am so glad I discovered your blog. I am now a proud owner of 3 of your paintings purchased from the lovely Jen O'Connor. I so look forward to owning more.

I LOVE the pigs & my heart skipped a beat when I read their names....Olive and Violet. How sweet!

I love the picture of the woman on a pig. That has to be the first of its kind I have ever seen. I really enjoyed the work here.

Oh how sweet! I used to come home from school and get into the pen with my pig and rock him to sleep... that, of course, was during his piglet stage.
